Parade

Event overview

Mark Leckey's 2003 commission Parade shows at Towner Art Gallery as part of Now, Today, Tomorrow and Always. With a focus on the provocative, liberating and seductive power of music and film, the exhibition reflects on a diverse range of subcultures and marginal communities, as well as individual, collective and national identities.

Extending Leckey’s own interests in the iconography of fashion and subculture, Parade consists of a phantasmagoric procession of images, in which the neon glow of the night-time city conjures up a spate of apparitional figures, circling around the slicked-up silhouette of the artist himself; alighting on, or emanating from, him like phantom projections of his personality.
